Apple's Passbook is a small, but significant step for m-commerce

Thursday 19 July 2012 | 13:21 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
Apple will enter the m-commerce space with Passbook, an app that stores tickets and coupons and uses QR-codes to display them. While Apple controls some aspects of the technology, it will leave it mostly to merchants and software developers to come up with services. Apple Passbook app will be launched commercially in the fall. It creates a type of wallet on the iPhone, for tickets, coupons, boarding passes and loyalty cards. Users select a pass and show a QR-code on the screen, ready to be scanned.
